Hi, I am Greg Mohr from Charis Bible College in Woodland Park, Colorado. Welcome to God Today. I want to read one verse from John 16:13. It says, “Howbeit when He, the Spirit of Truth has come, He will guide you in all truth. He will not speak of His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak and He will tell you or show you things to come.”
I want to talk to you about the Holy Spirit who knows your future, will tell you things to come. First of all, He will show us positive things to come, regarding your Kingdom potential. We know a verse in Jeremiah 29:11, “God knows the thoughts towards you, thoughts of peace and prosperity, not of evil. To give you a future and a hope.” But, the very next two verses tell you how to enter into that. That is that we have to seek Him with all of our hearts. That means we cannot have our own plans, our own ideas, and then ask God to bless it and get into our future. We have to seek Him and lay aside our own plans, our own thoughts, our own ideas. As we do that, God begins to download, in us, the future He has for you. I am telling you, God has a wonderful, wonderful future for you, filled with prosperity, filled with hope, filled with a Kingdom adventure. If you’ll follow Him, and listen to Him, you are going to discern what He has for you. But, you can’t be doing your own thing. You can’t just be doing things your own way.
The second thing that the Holy Spirit will do – He will actually show you negative things regarding the plans and schemes of the enemy, so we can stop it. So we can avoid it. So we can prevent it. Whenever God shows you a negative thing about the future, that the enemy has planned for your life, it is not for us to submit to. It is not for us to yield to in resignation. It is so we can realize that God knows what the enemy is doing. We can avoid that. Proverbs 22:3 says, “The prudent man foresees the evil and hides Himself.” On 9/11 – you know where you were on 9/11. There were 30,000 who worked in the twin towers. 3,000 people perished. 1,000 of those were first responders. 2,000 people perished and about 8,000 people got out of those buildings alive. Where were the 20,000 that were supposed to be there? God was dealing with people that day. “Don’t go to work. Don’t get on that subway. Stop and do this or do that.” The Holy Spirit was showing people, He was trying to protect people from the evil that was to come.
I know one time my wife and I were praying and sensed a foreboding feeling and sense of dread. We started praying and the Lord showed my wife a vision of my son Michael – who was two at the time – running out into the street and this red pick-up truck was there coming and fast and would have hit him. She came out of the vision. We took authority over that. We bound the enemy. We took authority over Him in the name of Jesus. Three years later, we were in Galveston, Texas. My wife was crossing over Seawall Boulevard with my three children. Michael, my five-year old son then, darted across the street. He thought Janice was there, and right in the middle of the street, she looked over to the right. There was that red pick-up she had seen three years before. She said, “Jesus!” And Michael flew back into her arms backwards. An angel, no doubt, had saved his life. The bottom line is God showed us that plan of the enemy 3 years before. Through prayer and our words, we were able to stop it.
I want you to know that God has a great future for you. If you listen to the Holy Spirit, He will show you how to avoid the evil plans of the enemy. Father, I pray for every person watching, that they are sensitive to your voice, you will show them the future, Lord. Both good and bad. They are going to walk fully in the plan of God and the enemy’s plans will be thwarted in Jesus’ name. Amen. This is Greg Mohr and this has been God Today.
